All School to Career events will be virtual for the 2020-2021 school year, please plan to be a part of the live Zoom meeting so that you will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in activities. DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO ATTEND!
Some presenters may agree to record their career event, if they do, we will make those recordings available for later viewing. Additionally, many events will occur only once (even if we had multiple presentations in previous years). Be aware that some events will fill quickly!
Career Event Registration
Priority will be given to registrations on a first come first served basis. Within two weeks of the event date, or when an event has filled to capacity, the link to register for that event will be removed and confirmation emails, with the Zoom passcode for the meeting, will be sent to registered students. First semester events are presented below in the order in which they will occur. Each event listing has the date and time, a description and a link to the flyer.
